Syd Carpenter Marine was a construction company doing work, especially on US Navy ships. Their extensive use of asbestos up until the 80s has made them responsible for their workers' potential health problems. They have been involved in a number of lawsuits and tried to destroy evidence attesting their asbestos use to avoid liability.

Asbestos has been a known health hazard ever since the 20s when various studies have linked it to lung cancer, mesothelioma or asbestosis.
